Stream HelpersOpenAIStream

OpenAIStream

OpenAIStream is part of the legacy OpenAI integration. It is not compatible with the AI SDK 3.1 functions. It is recommended to use the AI SDK OpenAI Provider instead.

Transforms the response from OpenAI's language models into a ReadableStream.

Note: Prior to v4, the official OpenAI API SDK does not support the Edge Runtime and only works in serverless environments. The openai-edge package is based on fetch instead of axios (and thus works in the Edge Runtime) so we recommend using openai v4+ or openai-edge.

Import

React

import { OpenAIStream } from "ai"

Parameters

Response
The response object returned by a call made by the Provider SDK.

callbacks?:

onToken:

(token: string) => Promise<void>
An optional function that is called for each token in the stream. It's passed the token as a string.
